The Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen has given the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and other world leaders a message, which is to “respect the aspiration of the people of Afghanistan.
Shaheen said it is the obligation of Johnson and other world leaders to respect Afghanistan because they were “behind the destruction” in the country over the last 20-years.
The Taliban further said that it is the world’s “moral obligation” to help rebuild Afghanistan to help people start new lives.
Shaheen told Sky News on Tuesday afternoon, “The UK prime minister and all leaders of the world, they should respect the aspiration of the people of Afghanistan. The people of Afghanistan they fought for their freedom with their lives.
“So they should respect their aspiration and will of the people of Afghanistan. And help the people of Afghanistan in rebuilding the country.
“This is their obligation because they were behind the destruction of Afghanistan during the 20-years. It is their moral obligation to also help to reconstruct Afghanistan and to help the people to start a new life, and a new chapter in Afghanistan.”
However, when the Taliban’s spokesman was asked how they can afford to run Afghanistan Shaheen said we have “huge natural resources.”
He told Sky News, “We have huge natural resources. We have very hard-working people.
“We hope and we believe in our people and their capacities.”
